Episode 40 – Two Days in the Life

Youtube didn’t allow me to link to Click Boom Sail with an end screen video so here’s a link to their first episode! Some of you have asked what a typical day is like for the crew of Rad Mode. Here’s events that occurred during 48 hours and it’s pretty typical of our days in…

Alarm Clocks…

I am really not a fan of alarm clocks. Actually, I hate the noise. It is the worst sound to be woken up to. I believe we should all wake up as naturally as possible to be in harmony with our day. Today, my daughter, Annabelle, told me, “I don’t hear the alarm clock every…

208 out of 365 (LOTS OF PICS)

Justin and I were sitting around talking last night and realized that we untied the lines a year ago. Wow! Time flies when you’re having fun. We then did a few calculations and figured that out of the past 365 days we have sailed 208 of them. That’s quite a lot, especially in San Francisco…

Episode 39 – WE SAILED ON BUTTERCUP!!!

While sitting on Rad Mode, broke down and stuck in Richardson Bay, a neighbor we’d never spoken to suddenly asks if we want to go sailing on SV Lightwave, formerly SV Buttercup of 1990 BOC Documentary fame, and what do we say? Hells yeah of course! After that, we continue working to get Rad Mode…

Episode 38 – Dodged That Bullet!

We have a fun sail aboard SV Plan B back to Sausalito from the Berkeley Yacht Club and then have to find a creative way to get the crew of Rad Mode back on the boat due to high winds and Rad Mode swinging around on her anchor. After that, a friend invites us to…

I Miss My Daddy

Sometimes life gets ahead of us or takes us away, but then it takes another moment in life to make us stop and realize… we only have one chance. In life we really only have one chance for anything. I am a person about the moment or in the moment. Take life by the horns…

Episode 37 – Can’t Touch This

Kristina and I have a very bad day when numerous things go wrong on Rad Mode, stranding us in Richardson Bay while we wait for replacement parts. We won’t let that stop us from having a good time so we raft up with our friends Dennis and June and have the crew of SV Plan…

Boats Make You Dream…

The wonderful thing about boats is they trigger the art of dreaming. It doesn’t matter if it is my dream, your dream, or our dream. It is about the beauty of dreaming. It is so magical to be sitting in the office filing papers, at Starbucks surfing the internet, or in the cockpit adjusting sails….

Permission to Travel

It’s just three little words… that hold a lot of weight. Ever wonder why we haven’t just hopped down the coast to Mexico by now? Three little words… Permission to Travel. For those of you who don’t know when you get divorced each party has a voice in if the other parent can leave the…

Adventuring is Hard on the Equipment!

The biggest thing we have learned is buy the extended warranty! I used to think that the added coverage was a waste of money. Boy was I wrong. We have used our extended coverage so much that they told us we could no longer use it. Apparently, Go Pro had to fix our Go Pro…

Episode 36 – The DEAL HOUND Strikes Again!

We untie Rad Mode from the bush we spent the night against in the Delta and sail down river to for some provisioning, a cheat day, pizza, beer, and donut holes. Kristina, the Super Deal Hound, scores us some cheap provisions in Oakland and we stalk up, sailor style. Please consider supporting our film-making efforts!…

Fleet Week in San Francisco!!! (PHOTOS)

Waiting in anticipation… crowds of people gather in the streets, children cheer with excitement, and boats gather out on the bay. The engines roar to life. You can hear them approaching before they come into view… and then it happens… The ground begins to tremble. You can feel it vibrating in your chest. The tension…
